sry I don't understand what you mean with "grounded outlet with a grounded cord". Do you mean those outlets people use in the US?
But thanks for making me think about the outlet and the extension cable. Didn't look very safe. I had 3 things plugged in at the same time in one outlet. The outlets alone don't look very safe by themselves.
Now I have only 2 things plugged in so I hope it will reduce the risk of harming anyone (especially me). So do you think those problems only occur in the country/place where I am staying at (Vietnam)? That my Mac is giving me electric shock has only happened here in Vietnam.
But 'touching the trackpad and get a shock + keyboard and trackpad die'-thing has happened to me in Europe.
Maybe its worth mentioning that I bought my Mac in the US. So in Europe they use different outlets. And in Vietnam they are almost the same as in the US. But I can plug them in though without using any adapters.
401 cycles is remarkable. However, as long as the battery is not deformed and the health is over ~70 percent and you get modest charge life from it, there is no reason to rush for a new battery. You can use the iStatPro Dashboard widget to monitor battery health:
or the utility Coconut Battery:
I use iStat nano.
26% health and 401 cycles. That's not normal, is it? I mean..I just used it for a little bit more than a year. Something must be wrong with my battery. The only thing I can do is to get a new battery because I don't have AppleCare...
